This edition of Urban Design Forum focuses on what is happening in urban design in Queensland. Most of the edition, and financial support for it, has been put together by Mike McKeown and his colleagues at Queensland Urban Design Alliance (UDALQ). A big thank you to them, and the supporters: UDALQ, PIA Queensland Division, Queensland Government,
Brisbane City Council, Conics, Deicke Richards, and Malcolm Middleton Architects.
Mike has been so successful, and authors so enthusiastic, that some items have had to be held over until the next edition: Lily Chan and follow-up to the recent very successful conference on the Gold Coast; Andrew Hammonds on his current work with PIA to provide urban design training for planners; and Tony Hall’s suggestions that sustainable and
affordable housing in Australia could benefit from looking at the ‘Essex’ model which has been evolved since the mid-1970s. So enjoy the contributions to this edition, and look forward to more from Queensland in the next edition.
